Terms and Conditions are pretty vital as they allow you to set the rules for using your website. However, with the exception of e-commerce, terms and conditions are not typically required by law.

Most businesses choose to have terms and conditions in place as it’s the only document on your site specifically designed to protect you and your business from liabilities and more – it’s always a smart thing to include.

⚠️ if you are processing users’ personal data, you are required by law to have a formal Privacy Policy. In fact, if you’re using Squarespace for your website, you need to create a Privacy (and Cookie) Policy to let your visitors know how you use their personal information.

‘If applicable law requires, you must provide and make available to your End Users on Your Sites a legally compliant privacy policy.’ – Squarespace

Need a Privacy Policy? Try, iubenda’s Privacy Policy Generator.

As your Squarespace site is unique to your activities and services what you need to include in your Terms and Conditions may differ from someone else’s. However, it is important to note that there are a number of clauses that are standard for almost every website’s terms and conditions.

  1. Identification and description of your business
  2. User guidelines that clearly state what is acceptable use while visiting the website
  3. Disclaimers and limitation of liability statements

Please see here for what basic terms and conditions should include.

💡 If you’re running an e-commerce site, be sure to include legally required disclosures like warranty and withdrawal information. Not sure what to include? don’t worry, our Terms and Conditions Generator includes guided setup and plug-and-play marketplace clauses for the most popular e-commerce platforms.

How to add iubenda’s Terms and Conditions on Squarespace

Once you’ve generated your Terms and Conditions with iubenda you need to integrate it on your Squarespace site. There are two ways to do this:

  2. Directly embed the Terms and Conditions into your website – JavaScript embeds are available on Business and Commerce plans on Squarespace

To add a direct link firstly, you’ll need to click on Use a direct link and click on COPY under the section titled “Terms and Conditions”.

Method 2 – Embedded Text

JavaScript is only supported in the Squarespace Business plan.

The direct text embedding option makes your Terms and Conditions Document look as if it is a part of your own site. For direct text embedding (in this case, you need to create an empty page on Squarespace, and paste your iubenda code there).

> Embed the text in the body > Terms and Condition > Copy.
